  • (2020-07-04, v:2.4) Max Yakin Bozek: WorkFlowy Beta
    Hi, Is there a way to make WorkFindy search land on the beta.workflowy page (instead of the standard workflowy.com)? Thanks and regards!
  • (2018-01-28, v:2.1) Rich Otley: Brother, can you spare any change-log?"
    What's in the latest update? (Version: 2.1 Updated: January 27, 2018)
  • (2016-06-11, v:1.8) Fred First: Quit working
    This was a fantastic tool until it stopped working. Calls up the WF search window with the search term in it but does not bring up anything in the page. I uninstalled and reinstalled. Nada. Help please.
  • (2016-01-12, v:1.7) not working outside of Workflowy
    Workfindy works very well when I am on the Workflowy tab - and will be quite useful. However, it doesn't work when I am in any other Chrome tab. Shouldn't it work there also? Clicking on the icon results in no action.
